from Jane Medved
I know it's confusing. Tammuz already? School's not even over yet. But that's the way it is with time – it just sweeps us along whether we are thinking about it or not. So, let's take a look together at Chodesh Tammuz, the Three Weeks and what this window of time is offering us. Announcing… (drum roll) The Baka Rosh Chodesh Shiur (for women) for Tammuz!
WHEN: This coming shabbat – June 15 – Parashat "Chukat" 5:45 p.m.*
*please note. we have fallen in love with starting on time. It's a long day, but we want to give everyone the chance to get back home for seudat shlishit or whatever other plans they have. The shiur will start at the time listed. If you arrive and the front door is closed – go back to the front and enter through the library. There will be seats available for you there.
WHERE: Jane Medved's house. Rehov Zerubavel 6, Baka
